Verse 1:
         C/G                 Em
	Traveling down on different roads
         F               G            C/G
	Trying hard to leave the load
	We take it there but we can't let go
          F              G      C/G
	It's so hard to lay it down

Verse 2:
         C/G         F        Em
	Back in Eden we were tried
	  Eb                   Bb
	Found ourselves disatisfied
          F                 C/G
	Seeking wisdom that she denied
          F                   C/G
	Trying hard to lay it down

         C/G            Em

	Don't you think it's time to be

	Burdened by the things i've learned
          F                          C/G
	Hurting because i'm too concerned
         G                    D

	Wish that i could lay it down
